The perfect app to teach your kids about money through completing chores and working towards goals. Don’t listen to us, listen to those that fell in love with it. “I love that the Homey not only encourages kids to develop a strong work ethic, but it teaches kids how money is earned, encourages long-term goal setting, instills real life financial skills, and connects the whole family with a fun approach to paid chores.” Crystal, MoneySavingMom “Homey is a great organizational tool for families!” Best Apps for Kids “Homey helps remind my children what jobs they haven’t done yet, so I don’t need to. It even inspires them to work a little harder to earn allowance. Better yet, they are learning to save up that allowance for a bigger reward.” Gloria, JugglingMother “A picture says a thousand words. And with Homey, those words are “this is the chore you’re supposed to be doing right now.” Snap a photo of your kid’s unmade bed and send it to them with a deadline, and then they can send a photo back once it’s taken care of.” Fatherly Features: - set daily, weekly or monthly recurring or one time chores for the whole family - set chores that are responsibilities and you won't pay for, and jobs to teach kids how to earn money or rewards - manage allowance and extra money rewards for each child - transfer allowance to a bank account (US only), or mark it as payed out in cash - track IOU - add or remove funds from wallet - set saving jars with financial goals - kids learn to manage their funds - Homey syncs across all devices in the household SHOW KIDS HOW MONEY IS EARNED With Homey you can pay kids commissions based on chores they do around the house like taking out the trash, cleaning their room, or mowing the grass. And you can also set responsibilities that are required to teach kids that everyone needs to contribute to the household.

This is exactly what I was looking for. It keeps track of what's owed, and enables me to deposit their savings. I didn't even know it had this feature until I downloaded it. Love it!
I've been using Homey for a few weeks now, and it's becoming one of my favourite apps. I do wish I could pick and choose which notifications I want to get (right now it's either on or off), with 5 kids notifications can get a bit much. Even so, this has been the first app that got my kids doing chores consistently, and without me nagging. I have a few recommendations: 1. don't bother setting up a spending jar - how the jars work, it's much better to keep spending in the "total money" and use jars for actual saving goals. 2. read the manual. I found it in the help section and it was a lifesaver. This app has more features than your usual chore app, and it can be a bit complicated to set things correctly. I thought the app was deleting chores, when in fact I had them set to multiple kids at once, and one kid always completed the one chore for all of them. 3. make sure your kids have just the permissions they need. I think the app could make this a bit more obvious, but I had all my kids set up as parents and there's no clue apart them being able to do everything (delete chores, add money to their wallets...). Lets just say they had a bit of fun with it. 4. This one if for the Homey team: MAKE TEXT BIGGER! I'm not getting any younger and some text is really small and white and hard to read, lol.
Design and features of this app are definitely the best in the category of chore/allowance apps. However, it is a bit complicated and I think they could improve the user experience to make setup easier. The chore packs are cool, but it's really annoying to edit each chore in the pack if the preset days don't work for us. Just a suggestion, I still love this app.
This is such a great idea, and it's so easy to use! It's so easy to keep track of allowance, and it teaches kids responsibility. I do wish more things were included in the free version, so everybody had a chance to try it out, but I feel this one is really worth it.
Update: This app has a lot of bugs. Too many to list. UI errors. Percentage calculations are off (all chores done = 93%?). Not worth the payment. —————- Please allow us to add chores without times. Jobs allows it. It responsibilities doesn’t. Also, a search would be nice. Ability to see reports for a month or year. Or all time. Also, when someone doesn’t do a chore it gets skipped ahead to the next instance. That’s a horrible way to handle missed chores. If someone doesn’t mop the kitchen it just doesn’t happen?
Misled to believe the app functionality was included for free. Only one week free trial
I’m 11 years old. I hate this app. It’s so stupid it makes me do work that my mom is supposed to do!!
I liked the concept of the app but it is VERY pricey and you only can add 3 people.
The idea is brilliant, the implementation not so much. So many server sync errors, lots of chores duplicated, no clear way to delete in bulk or delineate who owns which chore. I so wanted this to work, but alas, no.
I love Homey app! The pictures are great for my pre-reader, and it has all the allowance features I need for my older kids. It's really easy to use too. I love how versatile it is, though I admit it took some getting used to. The team behind this app is great, they respond quickly and they helped me find the features I was looking for (I thought I was making a feature request, but the app already had it!). Thank you!
